Chat log from R20 of 2019: Essendon vs Port Adelaide
- Updated: August 3, 2019
pcaman2003: Lycett dropped after a reasonably good game last week. Port don’t deserve to win dumping one of their best big men
Pokerface: hinkley was scathing, said he had a poor game
pcaman2003: Have my doubts on Hinkley’s state of mind thinking that. Lycett dominated 2 GWS ruckman and had 20 touches as well.
Pokerface: what was he like defensively, workrate etc? coaches look for alot more than possessions/hit outs
pcaman2003: He did well from what I saw. He also had 11 cont poss,5 marks,4 tackles and 80% DE.Put simply,he’s their best big man.
Pokerface: you are still looking at it from a purely statistical point. Positioning, workrate etc matter to coaches
pcaman2003: Like I said,he did well from what I SAW. He did everything expected from a ruckman I believe.
Ash777: If he loses this game he’s gone I think.
pcaman2003: Ryder and Dixon better play out of their skins today,or Hinkley will look foolish
Pokerface: hey im annoyed too.. i also have him 🙁 but i didnt see any of that game
Pokerface: ladhams is the one brought in for him
Pokerface: video of him speaking about the dumping on afl website
Pokerface: against zac clarke i was looking forward to a big score!
pcaman2003: Thanks Poker. Not familiar with Ladhams. Anyone know anything on him?
Pokerface: i thought he was more a young key forward
wadaramus: I think Port just have too many big men and don’t know how to combine them.
Pokerface: think you are right wada
th3rio: merrett butchering it 🙁
Grimes Jr: Ive tipped port. Dons overrated
Pokerface: I’ve tipped dons. Port overrated
Gandhi: Westhoff killing dons at the moment
pcaman2003: I’ve tipped a draw. Both teams overrated
Grimes Jr: agreed pcaman
Pokerface: lol pca
Stikman35: Zac Clarke is great ruck back up
Ash777: ugh fantasia’s hair
Pokerface: did you just say ugh fant-asia’s hair? or ugh, fanta-sia’s hair?
th3rio: no tackle for dyl clarke?
zoomba23: Is Clarke tagging anyone
Baldfrog: When Dons supporters are born the first word they learn is boooo
th3rio: bit of a tag on boak zoomba
Gandhi: Great time to have Saad in my keeper league
frenzy: boak i reckon zoomba
Pokerface: lol frenzy
Pokerface: *ghandi sorry
pcaman2003: Keeping Dixon in instead of Lycett. You pillock coach.
Ash777: The thinking might of been if dixon could get up that hooker might get forced back
th3rio: why are clarkes tackles not being tackled?
wadaramus: Dixon will be munching on a tasty donut in 60 seconds.
pcaman2003: Dixon has been back 5 rounds and has been rubbish. Hinkley is a moron.
Ash777: Essendon supporters are the worse going around all year.
Baldfrog: Dixon is Ken’s mate common knowledge
th3rio: there we go lol
Grimes Jr: come on power
BRAZZERS: when sutcliffe is on pace for a ton, you know it hasn’t been a good start.
BOMBRBLITZ: Tippa great mark
NewFreoFan: Don’t worry, Sutcliffe won’t maintain this
BRAZZERS: is rocky done for the day?
wadaramus: Bombers woeful in front of goals so far.
Nigma97: wtf was that shot for goal hahaha
NoneyaB: rocky not looking good
wadaramus: Not sure Brazzers, was a big hit to the back of his noggin.
Raspel31: Just home- what happened to the Rockster?
wadaramus: Rocky back on.
th3rio: hes back on lol
Raspel31: Ah, thanks Wada.
BRAZZERS: cheers lads
Baldfrog: Where was Jonas prior opportunity?
th3rio: zerrett would be on fire if it wasnt for 5 clangers
BestCoast: Afternoon gentlemen
Raspel31: Afternoon your Bestness.
Evan_Bryce: Rocky is back out there amongst the action. Seems to have recovered from the head knock.
pcaman2003: Hinkley’s decision to drop Lycett and leave Dixon in is working well. Sack the coach!
BestCoast: Ash777 calling Bombers fans the worst is insulting. I thought West Coast were lol
Ash777: no they’ve been better of late lol
pcaman2003: @BestCoast. Maybe equal billing?lol!
wadaramus: Stupid Hinkley, forced me to trade Lycett..
BestCoast: Raspel with the Bombers would put Port to the sword. How’s your team shaping up this week
jbjimmyjb: merrett’s ball-use is terrible
Raspel31: Stack was going to be my last upgrade but lost him, Rampe and De Goey groan.
pcaman2003: @Raspel. You’ve had a few rough weeks with injuries etc.
BestCoast: pcaman2003 still recon those PIE FLOGS have us covered lol
noobcoach: luke ryan + birchall + 0 trades = season over

Stikman35: Why can’t Duursma win rising star.
DrSeuss: Rockliff time to get involved Piggy

Ash777: right now it’s Rozee, walsh, smith and stack
jbjimmyjb: how has marshall, a key fwd, only had 70% TOG

Baldfrog: Charity shield on tonight raspel
Raspel31: Yep, it is indeed Baldfrog.
BestCoast: You’ll Never Walk Alone
BRAZZERS: no one is even close to Walsh, its a one horse race
amigaman: @Baldfrog, you’re too weak to even show your colors
Stikman35: Tippu needs to know he hasn’t kicked a goal yet. He’s making his team lose
NewFreoFan: Bombers may be good at comebacks, but I think they’re cooked this game
BestCoast: NewFreo Port specialise I’m stealing defeat out of the jaws of victory
